Visit the Iron Age
Life around the year 0 and the subsequent centuries was a life in harmony with nature. People were subject to the changing seasons and the moods of the gods. Throughout the day, they worked to survive.
Animals and fields needed tending, and in the surrounding nature, berries and herbs had to be gathered. The blacksmith, potter, weaver, and other craftsmen created and repaired clothing and tools, mostly for use in the village, but also for bartering or selling when a trader from distant regions passed by.
Vingsted Iron Age consists of a series of houses and other structures from various Iron Age villages in Jutland and is beautifully situated amidst grassy fields, cultivated fields, a lake, and a forest.
The Iron Age village is always open for walks and self-guided experiences.
The houses in the Iron Age village are only open during events and other activities.
